Pray. Fast. Act to End Famine.

Jul 09, 2017

prayer-fasting-st-marks-capitol-hill-dcThe Presiding Bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Episcopal Church invite us to a season of prayer, fasting, and advocacy.

The season began with a three-day fast starting Sunday, May 21st, the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine. The season will continue with a fast day on the 21st of each month through December 2018, when the 115th Congress will conclude.

The 21st of each month is significant because, by that date, the majority of food assistance benefits for that month will have run out. This means that the last week of the month is usually the hungriest week in America.
